The August 19 Washington "top two" primary will be upon us shortly. To help Palousitics readers make up their minds on who to vote for, I will be contacting the campaigns of our local contested candidates for the U.S. Congress (Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Mark Mays), Washington 9th District House of Representatives (Joe Schmick and Tyana Kelley) and Whitman County Commissioner District 2 (Jerry Finch and Pat O'Neill) and see if they will answer some questions that you have.
Post in the comments below any questions that you may have and indicate what set of candidates you would like to answer your question. Please be respectful and give your first name and hometown. You need to get your questions in no later than Midnight, Monday, August 11.
UPDATE: I have heard back from the McMorris Rodgers and Mays campaigns and both candidates for Congress will answer your questions. This is a great opportunity to find out their stance on pressing national issues such as the Iraq war, terrorism, energy, immigration, health care, veterans, the budget deficit, etc.
